ASD is committed to educating the whole child and giving an opportunity to learn by experience. Students learn to collaborate, think creatively, reason critically, and communicate effectively. Starting as early as K1, students are given opportunities to explore, experiment and discover with hands-on-learning. Throughout the elementary experience, the curriculum provides a framework for student creativity and curiosity.
The Elementary School curriculum is aligned with Common Core State Standards and follows a Standards Based grading scale. The program includes core subjects taught in a homeroom class environment along with encore (specialists) classes which include art, music, and physical education. The core subjects include: English, science, social studies, math and Arabic.
Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum and supported by technology coaches. The technology coaches help to develop learning opportunities for students using technology as well as how to become responsible digital citizens.
All students have access to a team of professionals to advocate and support academic, social and personal development. ASD student support services include: School Psychologist, Counseling Department, and Learning Support Services (LSS).
